Why work for us

What makes an Opencast consultant?

Many of our people have ‘consultant’ in their job title. At Opencast we are positive about what being a consultant means – and how that translates into the way our people work and grow.

We see the key role of an Opencast consultant to be to use what you know to help solve the challenges our clients face. Our consultants deliver value by developing skills in themselves and in our clients to help find technology solutions. And you don't have to have come from a formal consultancy background to be an OC consultant!

A good consultant leads and takes ownership – setting direction, providing best practice and being a trusted, credible advisor – from discovery to live. They will respect and listen – but tell the client how they see it.

Being a good consultant doesn’t just rely on skills. It’s about the values they embody. We help our consultants to grow and improve, including through supportive working relationships and training.

Hybrid working at Opencast

Your working time at Opencast will be split between multiple locations, including from our HQ and hub locations, client site or home. Travel is part of life at Opencast, and takes into account the requirements of your work, our clients and your team.

We believe that by working in person - with colleagues and clients - helps you to feel more connected and for us to deliver the best possible solutions.
